Quality Takes Time

We believe in fine jewelry, exquisitely made jewelry, the best precious metals, the very best gems. The best quality always has, and always will, take time. Select a new Cross item already made and if you place your order by 9AM, Monday - Thursday, it’s possible to have it by noon the very next day.

If we are designing a piece of jewelry using your family diamonds and gems, we are going to follow our time-tested philosophy of old world craftsmanship. We will not rush the creation of anything precious or anything rare. Your family gem is too important to us to ever do anything other than take the full measure of time in its creation.

We understand your desire for a new design and your eagerness to have the piece to wear for your next big occasion. The time that we give for completion for every project is real and necessary for the creation of the very best quality piece of fine finished jewelry.

Our Cross team of jewelers creates thousands of pieces of jewelry every year to sell in our store

We still accept between two-hundred and two-hundred twenty-five of our clients’diamonds and colored gems for resetting into Cross designs each year. Two-hundred to two-hundred twenty-five is actually a small number. If you are considering having a gem reset, it’s better to do it sooner rather than later. Because of increasing demand for the new jewelry we make and sell, at some point in the not too far future we may discontinue the opportunity to reset your family diamond.
Cross does not reset customers’ newly acquired diamonds or colored-gems. We sell diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires.

Cross does not reset customers’ emeralds or opals, new or old, due to the fragile nature of these gems and the wide array of questionable treatments both emeralds and opals are likely subjected to.

We add this additional caution for diamonds, rubies, and sapphires are all subject to synthetic production and treatments that can leave these gem susceptible to short term and long term risks.

All Cross gems have been acquired from some of the world’s finest and most reputable sources, are thoroughly tested, and are unconditionally guaranteed to be exactly, precisely what we represented them to be.

If you have any questions about new jewelry or a resetting project you may be considering, please give us a call Monday through Friday, 9:30am to 5:00pm.
